SANDRA:  I was actually horrified. I'm deformed. They told me I needed plastic surgery.
The plastic surgeon came in and instantly said, "I can't do anything. 
If it was the bottom lip it would reproduce itself. This is the top lip, it won't reproduce itself. 
I can't do anything.  It's ragged. I've got to cut it again and then pull it together. 
We're going to have to have to go to surgery right now & then you're going to have to have 3-6 more surgeries."  I instantly said, "I will never have another surgery." 
He just looked at me like I was crazy.  I said, "On top of that, it's my lip. I'm going to pray for you."
So I took his hands, never met this guy in my life & prayed for him. Went into the surgery, woke up in the middle of him sewing up my lip with black gut stuff. As he's sewing up my lip I heard him tell the nurse,
"I don't know why I didn't do this. I normally sew the lip to tally up, come back 3 weeks later, slit it." 
I'm thinking, I'm a preacher. Don't do this. I'm thinking. I can't say anything (out-loud).
I said (internally), thank God that's why you didn't sew it up. 
When I came out my nose was sitting over here on this side because he pulled it. They had to pull it.
So I'm lopsided like this. The only part of my lip that's open is a little teeny hole right over here.
I could just talk with a microphone like this on this side.
SID:  Yes, but you're not going to talk on a microphone with people looking.
SANDRA:  I had a healing explosion 10 days later.
SANDRA:  When I went in, the 1st thing I said was, "Okay this is how I look.  This is the way it is." 
I went home and I got all the pictures of me smiling, because he told me I would never smile again...never be able to see my teeth ever again. 
I got every picture of me smiling, plastered it all over all the mirrors, kitchen, everywhere.
Then every time I'd go by a mirror or go by something, I'd speak to that lip.
I would command it in the name of Jesus to move.  I'd command it maybe 30 times a day.
"I command you." He said it wouldn't move, remember; it couldn't.
I said, "I command you to move." When I went back to see him, I kept saying, "No I will never have another surgery."  He kept trying. He brought out a book with cleft lips & all kinds of deformities & said to me, "I want you to look at this." I said, "I will never look at this. I don't want to get it in my mind. I will never look at it.
I won't look at anything except pictures of me smiling & what I want this lip to do."
The day that I had the healing explosion that I looked so bad, I turned my back to the congregation.
I said, "It's every man for himself." I turned my back to the congregation. I said, "I command you to move." God as my witness I've never had a surgery, not 1 single thing. See, I think you can count my teeth pretty well.
SID:  I see (all your teeth).  Well you talk about 2 things.  Comment on persistence
and actually acting on the Word, not just thinking about what the Bible says.
SANDRA:  Remember, it matters what you think. That's why I wouldn't get that book in front of me.
I wouldn't get the pictures in my mind. It matters. When I made the statement earlier that I'm aware that all of God's healing power is inside of me, and the only thing that's blocking God's healing power from getting to my body, that's anybody who's listening, the only thing that's stopping it is my mind, what I'm thinking.
So I've got to persistently stay tuned to the Word of God until it gets past my mind into my heart, that I believe it more than what I see.
SID:  Yes, but what if it wasn't you. What if someone is listening to us right now.  They've done it all wrong. They have a picture in their mind of them dying of a dread disease. What can they do?
SANDRA:  They can do exactly what I did. They've actually got to change their thinking.
The thinking (change) is a process. You've got to change your thinking. They need to start visualizing them-selves. They need to see themselves healed. If they're skinny and emaciated, they need to see their body getting weight on it again. They need to believe that Word (and power) of God is released in their body & that there's something happening in their body. They've got to just speak to that body, keep speaking to it.
Say (for instance) I can't lift my shoulder.  I command it in the name of Jesus, "Shoulder, you will lift.
You will in the name of Jesus." The number one healings that we see, percentage-wise, are cancer.
We curse it. We curse it and we tell that cancer it will die in Jesus' name.  We keep seeing it go. 
The secret: you release your faith by praise & gratitude. So I have to say, "Lord, I'm so thankful healing is inside of me already. I thank You it's in me. Isn't that wonderful? I thank You it's in me.
Father, I just release it now (in Jesus' name)."
SID:  So what you're telling me, if I'm understanding you right, (as) it says it says in Proverbs:
that the Word is medicine.  You take as much (spiritual) medicine as you can.
SID:  All right, but do you deny your symptoms?
SANDRA:  No. You deny the right for them to be there.  You don't deny them, but you deny, you don't have a right in my body. I'm not saying you aren't there. I'm saying you don't have a right. I do that.
Now remember, a symptom is not a sickness. Your mouth can make it a sickness (by agreeing with what/whoever contradicts/disagrees-with/is not-in-alignment-with God's word in scripture).
