Moving Away? Or Pressing In? - Mark 3:7-12 Post 7

Those with diseases push forward to touch You (Mark 3:10)
Evil spirits fall down before You (Mark 3:11)
"You are the son of God," 
they cry.

Those with diseases know that they need You
Tho' they may not know who You are
The evil spirits know who You are 
But long ago decided not to need You...

I know my disease
I know that I need You
I know who You are
tho' not the way they do...

And maybe I don't want to be the one who crowds You
I stand off, aloof
And I don't want to be the one You need space from
I am the reason You need a small boat ready

Yet...
Where is it better to be?
Where would You have me be?

Standing off - aloof
Saying, "You are the son of God," 
but moving away?

Or 
not fully understanding
but pressing in
reaching for You
crowding You
doing all I can to be where You are
because I know
I need You
And I know Who You Are.
