“You will find a colt that has never been ridden.
Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you,
‘Why are you untying it?’
just say this, ‘The Lord needs it.’”
A humble donkey, not glamorous or powerful,
maybe not even noticed,
but, Loving Mystery, exactly what you need.
So many parts of myself I overlook—
an extraordinary talent or simple presence—
gifts I’ve been given I undervalue;
but you need them
for purposes I can’t yet see.
Beloved, what gifts of mine do you need?
Help me know what humble donkey you require,
and untie it.
My donkey … for you
