Grace located the item the other clerk had wanted and wondered what might have prompted the customer's preference for all things simple.

Anxiety is a sin also because it is a lack of acceptance of God's providence in
our lives. God's providence may be simply defined as God's orchestrating all
circumstances and events in His universe for His glory and the good of His
people. Some believers have difficulty accepting the fact that God does in fact
orchestrate all events and circumstances, and even those of us who do believe it
often lose sight of this glorious truth. Instead we tend to focus on the
immediate causes of our anxiety rather than remembering that those immediate
causes are under the sovereign control of God. Jerry Bridges in Respectable Sins.
