The Ministry of Life

Posted by Sarah Hudspeth in Hyphen. No Comments

25th August

Last year, I took on a new job that easily began to consume my energy, time, and attention. Because of this, I quickly began feeling drained and less ministry-minded. I hated that something was stealing my attention and focus from my top priority. The balance of life and ministry was like a pendulum. I was swinging in from Bible college, ready to be elbows deep in ministry in a new city, but still needed to be realistic about finding a sustainable job and making a living. I found myself in a career that can be consuming at times. Education requires so much of one’s time and attention. I was grappling, trying to find the balance between work and church—my ministry and my job.

I was consulting/complaining to my “iron sharpens iron” friend about it, and she quickly checked my spirit … Read More »



The Call Continues

4th July

“And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him. And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.”

With high school graduation excitement in the air, many are indulging in their last “free” summer before beginning a chosen college or career choice into this great mystery of life that lays before them. For some, the ending of this chapter is rather exhilarating. For others, this next phase proves daunting and, in many ways, administers anxiety in our quest for what’s next. Both are merited and true in their own way. In short, this is an exciting time.

Possibly one of the most overlooked areas during this time of filling out applications and scholarships is … Read More »



Uncomfortable Open Doors

8th May

Transitions are always weird, whether you’re stepping into a thrilling new chapter of life with all the glam and sparkle a twelve year old girl could imagine or you’re slowing the pace and easing into a slightly monotonous routine that resembles the geriatric ward down the street. Unfortunately, God uses these times in life to teach us invaluable lessons. Have you ever been in a place where God opens the doors and leads you into a direction you wanted but had no idea how uncomfortable it was going to be? That’s me. *raises hand as a single tear runs down face*

This past year I prayed for specific direction and God began to open doors. Imagine that! He opened one door at a time, and He was opening each one into a more and more specific direction. The path He … Read More »



Morality Adrift

Posted by Editors Choice in Hyphen, Inspirational. Comments Off on Morality Adrift

17th March

“Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day” (Psalm 25:4).

A recent study by Barna Group showed that six out of every ten young adults hold and believe in an individualistic approach to morality. Simply stated, morality is a personal choice, entirely a matter of individual decision. Moral rights and wrongs are essentially matters of individual opinions in the view of today’s millennials.

Young adults today are consistently bombarded with a cultural stigma of defining morality, moral beliefs, and moral reasoning. They are demanded at times to defend or debunk sources of rights and wrongs and are often berated if that view doesn’t fit what is considered to be in the boundaries of social norms. As a result, whenever we begin to discuss moral issues … Read More »



The Promise in the Call

Posted by Sarah Hudspeth in Hyphen. No Comments

19th November

When the call of God first came to me, it was not completely clear. I just knew God called me to follow Him further than before. He called me to go and give myself, but He didn’t give me clear instructions of where to go and what to do. I have never been one of those people who has a clear and distinct call from God to minister to a certain group of people or demographic, but I knew God spoke and I needed to obey.

I had full confidence that if He called me and I was following Him wholeheartedly, there would never be a day when I would be forsaken or deserted. Somehow, by the grace of God, I understood at a young age that if I obeyed God’s command, nothing could go wrong. I knew God’s promises … Read More »
