Desert Hills Baptist Church

As Senior Pastor of Desert Hills Baptist Church, I would like to welcome you to our PRAISE Blog!
Everyone (members, non-members, anywhere in the US or other countries) will have the opportunity to blog their PRAISES
as often as you feel led to and we will be compiling all PRAISES on our website blog, to make a MOUNTAIN OF PRAISE.

Years ago in my own life, I was going through a particularly hard time, (yep, Christians/Pastors have problems too).
I counseled with my Pastor at the time and he gave me the keys to unlocking all despair. A formula of sorts to dealing with darkness. Simply put, PRAISE GOD!

Not only is He worthy, but praise requires the believer to meditate on all of God's Wonder, Grace, Mercy, Love and Compassion.
Upon reviewing all God has done, is doing, and frankly who He is, one's own countenance cannot help but be lifted up.
Besides that, the Bible itself declares, it is comely for the righteous to Praise God, Psalm 33:1. It is a form of sacrifices that
God Himself sponsors and inhabits, Hebrews 13:15.

Our Mountain of Praise will become a place of refuge and encouragement for the lost and the saved alike!

As we offer our praises for God and how He has forgiven us through the shed blood of His son, Jesus.
We can also post how He has answered specific requests, delivered from temptations, and blesses us beyond belief.

MOUNTAIN OF PRAISE has the potential to literally reach the world and change it one praise at a time!

Until we are called home, and the church is raptured, let us build this Mountain together as a permanent testament to God's Goodness.
Be blessed! Then PRAISE about it! Psalm 145:4-12 (Look it up!!!!)

Always Praising Him,
Pastor Scott

Meet the Need
“For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body?
But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.” I Corinthians 12:14-21

“I’m in the choir, I don’t have to help clean the sanctuary – that’s someone else’s job.” “I just want to sit and listen. I don’t want to actually do anything.”
When I pastored in Louisiana there were people, many who didn’t have children or teens, that complained why we didn’t have anything for the youth? I was already teaching adult SS, leading worship, preaching Sunday morning and evenings, Wednesdays, leading Tuesday Men’s Bible Study, Thursday Visitation, and going to New Orleans (at least an hour one way) for hospital visits.
So I told folks, from the pulpit, the next time someone complained about there not being anything for the youth, the youth would be at their house next Friday! Why didn’t people step forward? If you see a need and you can fulfill it, then ask if you can help!
Is there a need in the church that you can meet? Is there something in the church that you can do? Ask the leadership where you can serve. Try not to be that person who says, “The church should have . . .”
Meet the need!
STEVE OLAFSON said 7/8/2017 7:37:34 AM :
I give THANKS to my God for being that CORNERSTONE in my life!
