Be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12
The Bible and all of life is full of examples of men and women who have overcome travesty, injustice, suffering, pain, and great obstacles. Each one, and one by one, each in her/his turn, when the day came, and God called him or her responded and overcame. With faith and patience you will do likewise.
Let us all live in hope. The saints and heroes of old were once like each one of us. They were once weak, slothful, sinful, had their burdens and hindrances, their failures and falls. Their life was commonplace. Morning and night came to them just like they do with us. Little fretful circumstances and frequent disturbing changes wasted away their hours as ours. There is nothing in our life that wasn’t in theirs. But when God called they responded and overcame them all. You will as well.
