Do you know when your praises and thanks mean so much more to God? When you are ailing or suffering. The fact that even in the worst of times when you should be cursing; you do the thing that is not a human reflex action. It is these actions that indicate to God how you have grown and that you have passed his testing. For some it may take longer; for others it may even get more unbearable.
However, pull, push, stand, fight and resist the devils work on your mind. It does start and end in your mind. If necessary seek the prayers and comfort of your friends. This will be like an oasis in the desert. You may find like Job that your real friends are mirages and you can only rely on the source of help that comes from God; whether that be in a stranger, the bible, nature or an act of kindness. Hold on, someone is praying for you.
