I have been writing a fashion blog for a few years now and right away I started noticing the issues in the fashion industry. I read about “fast fashion”. Fast fashion are products that are made extremely cheap. This kind of fashion not only is cheap to make, it is also cheap in quality. Because fashion trends are changing so quickly too, your clothes go out of style quickly. This has added to the immense amount of waste. It’s so interesting.
That’s why there is a push for something called “sustainable fashion”. It’s a push to use recycled products, more classic pieces that will not go out of style, and companies create fashion products as the demand comes not mass production. I learned about what to look for in fashion companies and how to shop for pieces that will last for years, not months.
Just like fashion, our faith needs to be in what is sustainable. We can place our faith in things that are cheap. Things or people who are here one day but gone the next. We say things like “keep the faith” or “have a little faith”, but if our faith is not in God, our sustainer, our faith will not last. Our faith will not last until the next season. Put your faith in the only ONE who sustains: the Lord Jesus Christ.
Hannah Lynn hosts Moody Radio’s That’s Real and is an engineer for Karl and Crew mornings. She grew up as a homeschooler on a tree farm, plays the harp (ask her about harp camp), drives a Prius (don’t judge), and started a fashion blog while a student at Moody Bible Institute (yes, that’s possible). Hannah loves to tell people about Jesus—as a seven-year-old she witnessed to her ballet teacher, then she started a Young Life club while in high school. Now she mentors teens with her husband, John, who serves as a youth pastor.
