Where am I in this?
(Mark 3:20-21). 


Am I...
part of the crowd?
(Mark 3:20)

Following You wherever You go, even to this house, here to see You, longing for a touch from You, hoping to be healed by You, eager to hear what You might say, pressing in to touch You, crowding You because I know I need You?


Am I...
with Your family?(Mark 3:21)
somewhere - distant, not near You - where I  just hear about what you're doing rather than seeing with my own eyes -  not helping, not even coming to talk to You in order to try to find out what's going on, to try to understand You and what You are doing; but deciding that I know better, thinking I had best take charge of You and what You're doing because CLEARLY You don't know what You're doing.  You've lost Your mind. You're getting out of hand, or at the very least You've let things get out of hand, and I must do something.


Or
am I...

with the disciples?(Mark 3:20)
Not fully understanding what You're doing, maybe, a little confused and bewildered - and hungry - but following, helping You with the crowd, sticking with You, going hungry with You since that's what You're doing - right there in the midst of what You're doing - whatever it means...
 

Even if it looks crazy.
Even if it means I'm hungry.
Even if I'm disappointed, if my expectations aren't fulfilled.  Even if it means being sent to the desert.  
Even if it means lonely places
Even if it means walking away from my booth
Even if it means eating with sinners and tax collectors.  
Even if they tear my roof, even if I miss meals, even if they say I'm out of my mind, even if they say I'm possessed, even if it means betrayal
even if it means...
