The Ferry to Tears
You are trying to turn a corner in sadness and travel a roadway, there is no barrier but there is an abundance of headlights approaching you. This queue of lights indicate the road ahead is blocked and cars have been turned around. The corner you attempt is a left turn from a remote and very small vehicular ferry that has just transported you across a mighty river. The turn left off the ferry takes you to a safe, still, quiet and secluded village of fascinating historical value. The intersection you are turning rarely offers oncoming traffic, let alone the volume you now see. The long road to the village is largely dusty, narrow, rough, sealed by hard-packed dirt, for the tarmac ends not far around the corner. (You already know this, for you have travelled here countless times). You are still free to negotiate the left-hand corner but wonder how far down this country road you will drive before being turned around by a blockage. You ask in your mind - why hasn't a road-block been set-up at the intersection with the ferry?
your tears are being turned around, the lonely pathway that has become comfortably familiar to you is to be blocked, there will no longer be need or desire from within to approach the old village and travel the path of driving stones.
People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. (Isaiah 30:19)
