You hem me in behind and before

No wonder sometimes you feel stuck in life, like there's nowhere else to go. You try this or that but you end up with only closed doors. Dead ends. It's like you're being pushed to a corner and you have no choice but to go one particular direction. God hems you in--behind and before. I know this goes against free will, but there it is, in Psalm 139.5.

I remember what Jesus once told Peter: "But when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go." [John 21.18]. There are individuals whose free wills are hemmed in, and that's free will for them. Are you one of them?
