Country Star Colt Ford Cheats Death Twice: ‘The Lord Had More for Me’

Life is a fragile thing, something we often take for granted. While we are just pilgrims passing through this temporary world, awaiting our true home in heaven, God has a plan in store for each one of us to accomplish, if we are willing to travel down that path.

Country megastar Colt Ford recently had what many people call a “come to Jesus” moment, where he suffered a major heart attack and died twice while on his way to the hospital.

“I didn’t even remember coming out here to do a show in Phoenix, and apparently we played this great, sold-out show and it was incredible,” Ford recalled during an interview. “I walked back to the bus, texted my fiancée, ‘Hi baby,’ and fell over dead.

“I died two times. Luckily, my band came out to check on me. … All of a sudden, that’s when all hell broke loose.”

Having such a massive heart attack, it was difficult to get to a hospital with the best care available to handle Ford’s worsening situation, and he “died on the way over” to a hospital that could properly care for him. Thankfully the medical team “brought me back, saved my life,” Ford shares.

Dying and coming back has been a tool the Lord has used for millennia, with stories about this very thing being used as examples to glorify God and bring those who witnessed such events closer to Him.

The doctors who were working on Ford offered a stunning revelation about the seriousness of his situation: “I wouldn’t have given you 1%, I would have given you 0.1% that you would have survived,” Ford was told by his doctor.

“I had so much trauma to my body and my heart, they had to put three stents in,” Ford says.

This type of eye-opening event has a way of making us reevaluate our lives and priorities, and of bringing us back into alignment with God.

As Paul writes in Romans 8:28, “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
