ABOUT THE BOOK
You might be dying and not even realize it.
Just five days before Christmas 2013, I was driving down a dark, winding country road in Eastern North Carolina amid nothing but tobacco fields and farmland. Without warning, I slammed into the back of a dump truck, flipping my tiny Chevrolet S10 pickup truck on its side. As a result of my seatbelt's resistance (that saved my life), my colon was severed and I spent a total of 21 days in the hospital and had to endure a colostomy for three months. The troubling fact about my accident is that it could have been easily avoided.
You see, I wasn't paying attention to the road, instead I was scrolling through Instagram wishing I was anything and anyone but myself. Looking at people more successful, more buff, more talented, and more popular than me - I was consumed with comparison and it nearly killed me.
Chances are you haven't been in a tragic wreck because of your constant comparison of yourself to others, but you are still slowly allowing comparison to kill you nonetheless. In Sky Full of Stars: How Comparison Can Kill Your Light, a book that I wrote for you, I recount my accident and my journey to becoming not just content with who I am, but excited about who God made me to be. I hope my story will help you realize that God - who created galaxies and galaxies of stars, knows them by name, and calls them out each night - also sees you, created you, and breathed life into you. It’s my hope that you come to the realization that in a sky full of stars, God sees and loves you just for who you are.
