A sheriff has been spreading the Word of God after God miraculously healed him from COVID-19 when doctors predicted he wouldn’t make it.
Sheriff Infected With COVID
When the pandemic happened in 2020, many people suffered from the life-threatening COVID-19. Especially those with pre-existing health conditions. That is why when Cranford Jordan, a Sheriff in Winnfield, Louisiana, contracted COVID, doctors said he might not survive.
Cranford was over 65-years-old with diabetes and high blood pressure when the virus hit him. Moreover, he was also overweight. Hence, experts told him, “you are not going to make it.”
Turning To God
The elderly experienced many of the symptoms while he was sick. Hence, the Sheriff spent five days on a ventilator. He also suffered from temporary memory loss after waking up. It was tough for Cranford, but he turned to God and made a deal with Him during the harrowing battle.
“As I was laying there, I and my good Lord had lots of talks,” he recalled. “I trusted Him at a young age. A lot goes through your mind. During that time, I promised to do more work for my Lord and spread His Word.”
And even while Cranford was still at the hospital, he prayed and ministered to all the nurses and medical staff.
Weeks later, indeed, God healed the Sheriff and he was eventually discharged. And his wife met him outside for the first time after several weeks of not seeing each other.
“The days were long,” the wife shared. “We have a wonderful neighborhood and a lot of his staff also brought items to me and kept me going. In our church, my Sunday School class, we had everyone in town praying for us. We had all denominations in our community praying for us, and it does make a difference.”
Further, the wife pointed out that “God’s hand” made his husband come out alive from the tough battle.
“It took me a few months to recover before I could come back to the office and work,” the Sheriff added. “The reason I’m here is because of God’s grace. He saw to it to have the right people in the right place to take care of me. That’s the only reason I, or anybody, is here. I’m thankful. I give Him the credit for everything in my life.
“In good times, we sometimes don’t thank God enough. In bad times we call upon Him. I hope I serve him more and more. I’m not perfect, but I try to do the right things.”
Today, Cranford kept his promise to God to share the Gospel everywhere. Ever since he miraculously recovered from COVID, he spoke and gave his testimony to churches.
Sheriff Cranford is grateful to God for the miraculous healing. He also credits all the medical staff who were them to take care of him at the hospital.
“I’m here today because one, my good Lord,” he said. “Prayers went up for me. And two, God answered the prayers through the nurses and medical staff at Rapides Regional Medical Center.”
What a great testimony! Thank You, Jesus!
