Nic told Henry yesterday that he told his friend he had a hole is his heart. What?? Henry was thinking the worst and then he put two in two together that Nic was actually sharing Christ with his friend. He was telling his friend he has a hole in his heart because he didn't have Jesus in his heart. We were watching "The Donut Man" on cd the night before and Nic was wondering what the donut man was singing about. You can listen to it here:
"What is he saying mummy? I don't understand. Why is he saying we have a hole in our heart?"
I told him life without Jesus is like a donut. You have a hole in your heart that feels empty and you constantly crave to fill it with something like Ben 10, PS2 games, Ultramans, toys, parties etc. But when you have Jesus in your heart you feel secure and you don't crave for things like that anymore because you know Jesus loves you very much.
I find it amazing that little Nic just wants to share Jesus with his friends and I am very thankful to God for that - that He has a heart for Jesus. I tell Nic it is more important to share what Jesus has done for him rather than to tell people to believe in Jesus. I think he is slowly getting there. Nic asked us last night "Why doesn't Ah Ma believe that God loves her?". We don't know, maybe she does know, maybe Nic can reach out to her so that Jesus can fill her heart too. :)
Here are the lyrics to the song "Life Without Jesus is like a Doughnut":
Life without jesus,
Is like a donut,
Like a donut,
Like a donut.
Life without jesus is like a donut,
Coz there's a hole in the middle of my heart!
And it might be okay for a while,
Until the world comes and takes away my smile!
There's something sad in me i can't control,
When i think about a donut hole!
