Light at the END-of-the-Tunnel?

I had this revelation today early in the morning. It was hounding me and I kept thinking what is the purpose of it all? I am not going through anything particularly hard that this should pop into my mind...
1. Do you believe Jesus Christ is your Lord and Saviour? Yes
2. Have you received the Holy Spirit? Do you believe the Holy Spirit is within you?Yes
Then there is no light at the end of the tunnel because the light is within you! You are the light in the tunnel. In fact....
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 
Matthew 5.14-16
 Sure enough about 9 hours later, I found myself battling a vision I had: not fully understanding how it could possibly come to fruition when things seemed like they were moving sooooo slowly. I spoke to a friend, tried to speak to my sisters, got on a chocolate/sweet-popcorn high but could not shake the feeling off until I prayed. I prayed for this 'one thing' that was on my mind. I expressed my gratitude for 'It'. And returned 'It' to the Lord's hands. Then I 'podcasted' some sermons because faith comes from hearing of the Word right and God knows I needed my faith restored/renewed/increased. Something someone said reminded me of this verse that had come to me in the morning. I am the light even when I am in my circumstance...I need to keep shining while I am in the tunnel. Trudging pitifully along is not an option. Being shaken and stirred should not blow my flame out. Doubt and uncertainty are no replacement for a sound mind! I am in a tunnel and I am the light. When I reach the end, the vision will be fulfilled and I will still be the light. So I have learned that some lessons may not appear relevant early in the morn but the Lord always equips me to fight these mind games way before the battle. 

Was listening to John Burns today  and he spoke of this verse....and I needed to hear it especially today that as I go through this tunnel, God has already spoken and I have written down the vision, now I must wait.

Habakkuk 2
Then the LORD answered me and said:
      “ Write the vision
      And make it plain on tablets,
      That he may run who reads it.
       For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
      But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
      Though it tarries, wait for it;
      Because it will surely come,
      It will not tarry.

        “ Behold the proud,
      His soul is not upright in him;
      But the just shall live by his faith.
