"Hold It Up To The Light" as written by and David Patrick Wilcox....
It's the choice of a lifetime & I'm almost sure
I will not live my life in between anymore
If I can't be certain of all that's in store
This far it feels so right
I will hold it up & hold it up to the light,
Hold it up to the light, hold it up to the light

The search for my future has brought me here
This is more than I'd hoped for, but sometimes I fear
That the choice I was made for will someday appear
And I'll be too late for that flight
So hold it up & hold it up to the light,
Hold it up to the light, hold it up to the light

I said God, will you bless this decision?
I'm scared. Is my life at stake?
But I know if you gave me a vision
Would I never have reason to use my faith?

Now as soon as I'm moving & my choice is good
This way comes through right where I prayed that it would
If I keep my eyes open and look where I should
Somehow all of the signs are in sight
If I hold up the light

It's too late & to be stopped at the crossroads
Each life here & each a possible way
But wait & and they all will be lost roads
Each path's growing shorter the longer I stay

I was dead with deciding & afraid to choose
I was mourning the loss of the choices I'd lose
But there's no choice at all if I don't make my move
And trust that the timing is right
I will hold it up hold it up to the light
Hold it up to the light, hold it up to the light.

    General CommentThis song isnt sad! Its just a man struggling to make a very important decision in his life. He would really like to know beforehand how each choice would turn out so he could choose "the right" one, but so many times we dont even know whats right for us. What would be the use of putting faith in God to guide him to the right decision if he already has foreknowledge of what will happen? Pretty soon we'd start thinking we didnt need God because we have "control" over our lives. The bible says that we are saved by faith alone and that is precisely what making a life changing decision requires. Thus he comes to the conclusion that he needs to trust God, knowing that He will help him make the right decision.
