    I used to believe that there were so many options
    But now I truly understand there is no other choice
    Except to follow the path God has set before me
    Wholeheartedly and boldly without any remorse
    For life has taught me God knows whats best for me
    No longer shall there be a struggle between wills
    So many times in my past I choose to go my own way
    Only to realize that my way hasn't gotten my anywhere
    So today I surrender and submit myself to God's will
    Knowing that God is the only real true choice or option

    When my back is against the wall
    There is still no other choice

    When my money becomes a little funny
    There is still no other choice

    When friends are phony and walk away
    There is still no other choice

    When family turn their back on me
    There is still no other choice

    When life begins to toss me to and fro
    There is still no other choice

    Though He slay me yet will I trust Him
    For there is no other choice

    Those times when life doesn't turn out the way we'd like, we may feel that God has led us astray, but God truly is the way. There is no other choice, well said poetess, well said.
