Have you ever found yourself caught on a roller-coaster ride that you weren't standing in line for? If so, you'll appreciate how Joe Stowell reminds you of important biblical truths you need to help you hold on with certainty and stay on board, even in the ups, downs, and wild curves of life. The Upside of Down presents tribulation as God's tool to prepare you for His use and to respond fruitfully in the midst of life's wild ride.
Like a roller coaster ride, life is filled with stomach-wrenching drops, dips, and sudden curves. But there is an upside to being down: God, who works in and through our troubles and never abandons us to disaster, provides a well-engineered superstructure and a carefully planned set of tracks and guardrails. Even when the ride is too hectic, unsettling, and twisted for us to sense His support and guidance, He is still there. This book is about learning to trust in God's work and provisions as the divine superstructure underneath every trial. When we understand the ultimate purpose behind our suffering, we will be willing to stay on board.
