You think you're in control of your life, but God actually has total Reign. So relax, life will be taken care of since we aren't in control.

T.O.W. Two – Grammar Girl

I took a look at Grammar Girl’s website specifically at the “Stacked Modifiers” blog.  I learned that  using a hyphen in double or triple modifiers such as (man-eating lion) gives clarity in the sentence.   When joining words together, is called a phrasal adjective i.e. credit-card statement.  Now using hyphens to link up a bunch of words will not clear up a sentence.  Linking about three words will suffice, and taking away some words can make a sentence more easy reading.
