Couswella Hardy has been an avid member of New Greater Bethel Ministries for ten years. She has spent her time serving in the ministry’s choir, nurse’s team, and pastor’s aid committee. Since a young age, her mother, the late Faith Rosemin taught her how to trust and believe in God’s mercy.
In 2017, Hardy was diagnosed with Stage Two Breast Cancer. The human reaction after hearing this news is sadness and then anger. Anger, questioning “Why Me?”, but even with all those emotions boiling inside of her she decided to take a leap of faith, trust in the Lord, and believe in her complete healing. Through it all, she never accepted the diagnosis given to her because she stood firm in knowing that God had the final say.
One day she was speaking to an old friend, Loretta. Loretta said to her “I feel that God wants me to tell you, to Push Pass Whatever”.
While going through her cancer treatments, she never missed a church service and she knew, that is exactly where she needed to be. Without God’s continuous showering of strength, “I don’t know where I would be”. To sit and watch yourself lose your hair, losing excessive weight, waking up every morning, and have to find the energy for doctor visits, without God she would have given up all hope.
God saw her through her darkest hour and in recognition of all of God’s mercy in her life she wants to now encourage you to “Push Pass Whatever”. No matter what you are going through, no matter how long you have been on the ground, know that God will see you through, he will not forsake you.
Now in 2021, four years since my illness, I stand healed, walking in divine health, and will continue to walk by faith, not by sight. God has given her the chance to minister to others and encourage them that no matter what storm comes your way, you too can “Push Pass Whatever”!
