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 FORPRAISES 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,
*(If you have a Prayer Request, please CLICK HERE to use our Prayer Request Page. Thank you.)
Enjoy the Praise song above while posting & reading others PRAISES!
5: My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
6: He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
7: In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8: Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

2 Peter 1-4: 1-Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:
2-Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3-According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4-Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

9/7/2017 6:57:56 AM :
THANK YOU Lord for GOOD BIBLE BELIEVEING FRIENDS, people that show us by EXAMPLE to WALK IN YOUR WORD! Showing me that putting on the ARMOR OF GOD is something we SHOULD DO EVERYDAY!
Ephesians 6:10-18 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
9/6/2017 9:51:54 AM :

9/5/2017 7:03:48 AM :
THANK YOU Lord for a REFRESHED NEW DAY to have YOUR COMMUNITY and FELLOWSHIP of BIBLE BELIEVING men!
Doing meditations and devotions and LEARNING YOUR WORD. Having RENEWED SPIRIT and ENTHUSIASM!
Romans 7:14-25 14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Learning the meaning of LOVE and NEW THOUGHTS of YOUR TEACHINGS. I THANK YOU ALWAYS Lord!!

I was reflecting with my husband about the GOODNESS of God and we began to talk about situations that involved our children over the past years. When I looked back I just had to THANK God for HIS GOODNESS and HIS PROTECTION over my children. When things happened, HE STEPPED IN and made them not turn out as bad as it could. HE is a SAVIOR in MORE WAYS then one. GLORY to HIS name, ALL PRAISES to HIM!!
