La, La, La … La, La

hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.

If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”

Does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it?
And will he not repay man according to his work? (Proverbs 24:11-12)

I am saddened by the blatant disinterest and purposeful distancing of those who are either too fearful or too comfortable in their cozy little cocoons to voice their disgust, take a stand, and be heard! Sing louder, church, so you drown out the cries that arise from the evil environment that surrounds you … until one day you face the same evil while the church just sings and sings. No respect for life will one day very soon filter down to the sick and the elderly. Think I’m kidding? Stay silent, keep singing … la, la, la … and you may sadly find out.

About Cheri Henderson

Cheri (Gale) Henderson, a resident of Waynesville, Ohio, acknowledged Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of her life on April 11, 1983. She became a new creation that day, old things passed away and all things became new, and now she lives to bring Him glory. She loves to worship her Savior and she also longs for all men to be saved. Much of her poetry is a reflection of her new heart. She began writing "Lyrics for the Lord" (http://cherihenderson.wordpress.com) the week after she dedicated her life to Christ, and is now a published writer in Billy Graham's "Decision" magazine, many other Christian magazines and periodicals around the world, and most recently, the book "Divine Stories of the Yahweh Sisterhood". Her prayer is that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, the words that flow from her pen will permeate the hearts of all who read them, and that lives will be changed forever for the glory of God! "Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit" (II Corinthians 2:17), therefore, you may use any of the poetry displayed herein freely and non-exclusively, for non-profit purposes only (and as long as the author credit remains intact), to perform, broadcast, display or print in complimentary newsletters, church bulletins or the like.
