My silkworm request

I'm just a worm, but if possible i'd like to be a worm that spins silk, instead of one that squirms through dirt. Is that a fair request? Father, would you fill my insides with truth so that what comes out is silk.... then teach me to weave it into beautiful things.... pleasing to You.... like garments of praise and pure linen clothes... I can't make those things myself - they are yours.... a gift..... bestowed on us in exchange for a despairing spirit and filthy rags...... But you say too that your Spirit lives within us, so what flows out should be good fruit.... and that's my request..... 'cos right now i see more dirt, than i do silk. But really, i'd like to be a vessel of life - a vessel of truth.
