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 differs because IT WILL BE FOR PRAISES ONLY & CONTINUALLY.
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

1 Samuel 1:10-18;
10: And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.
11: And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.
12: And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth.
13: Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.
14: And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.
15: And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.
16: Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.
17: Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him.
18: And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.

What a GREAT STORY from the Bible, God is SO GOOD! HE WILL help CHANGE things if we only ASK! THANK YOU Lord!

Christmas 12/25/18

Matthew 1:18-23;
18:Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19: Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
20: But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22: Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Lord Jesus I THANK YOU for YOUR BIRTH and what YOUR coming to this to this world has DONE for us! THANK YOU God for this!

JUDY said 12/6/2018 1:35:18 PM :
This morning we saw a picture of how a good Christian man lived his life.

President George HW Bush was the embodiment of grace, love and hope. You can see it in the way he lived his life, loved his wife Barbara, and the tradition goes on in his kids, grandkids and rest of the family. He lived his life with humor, compassion, empathy and strength. whether you agreed or not with his political beliefs and his time in office, he was a man to look up to and to admire. He had character and he was a true gentleman. He liked to laugh and he tried to make others feel good about themselves. What a tribute to him and his family this morning.
STEVE OLAFSON said 12/5/2018 10:51:03 PM :
