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 »



Uncomfortable Open Doors

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 »



All I Want Is a KitchenAid

Recently I took a really exciting step and purchased a KitchenAid mixer for myself. Now you may be thinking “She’s so lame. Who even cares?” But for me it was a really exciting addition to my countertop and my life. I’ve wanted one for years and years, and I’d always assured my mom that if it came down to it, I’d take a KitchenAid over a boy any day. While she may not have agreed or supported my ramblings, she was truly happy for me when I announced my beloved purchase.

We all have things we desire or long for; things that consume our thoughts, conversations, and our spending habits. These desires can be for relationships, looks, wealth, clothes, brands, fame, and so on. As Christians we seek to live a life that prioritizes and focuses on God and His … Read More »



The Will of God

8th March

My hands are clammy, I’m bouncing in my seat, and my heart is racing like I’ve had seven shots of espresso. This was my reaction when someone asked that simple, yet not so simple cliché question: “So, where do you see yourself in ten years?” I don’t know how you respond to that question, but that’s the awkward moment when casual conversation would slap me in the face. Everything was fine until that question was thrown out there.

The idea of the unknown variable has terrified me at times. I’d go through all the “steps” to find God’s will for my life. Extended fasts, tons of cry-my-eyes-out prayers, and bugging my pastor endlessly just to get some answers. I just wanted a blueprint, street signs, a treasure map—anything! Why wouldn’t God just speak in an audible voice and tell me … Read More »



Dream On, Dreamer

God loves dreamers. They’re the people who see His purposes and prophesy His plans. Unfortunately, they’re also the people most often misunderstood and unappreciated.
