Heart Mended by Miraculous Healing Power

“And she said these words that would just forever change my life,” said Mrs. Dell Anderson, “she said – ‘You will live and not die.’”


“As the band began to start the worship music, I stood and I raised my hand in worship,” recounted Dell, “and a woman that I didn't know – I had never seen her before. She walked past me, turned around, and came back and stood nose-to-nose with me, and she said, ‘Fear not, for the Lord your God says you will surely live and not die.’”

“I think both of us were a little concerned,” said Dell’s husband Cary. “Obviously, ‘You'll live and not die,’ kinda tells you something is going to happen since both of us were quite concerned. ‘Okay, What's gonna happen next?’”


“Monday came,” said Dell, “I just didn't feel quite right. I just felt kind of out of sorts, just tired and not feeling my best. I was sitting on my sofa with my husband and I said, ‘Something's not right.’ I said, ‘I can't breathe.’ I said, ‘I need to go to the hospital.’

“We took her immediately to the Emergency Room,” hurried Cary, “pulled up, they came out with a wheelchair, wheeled her inside. The whole time I'm saying to God, ‘have your hand on her.’”

Dell said, “My vitals are slipping, and I'm saying, ‘Lord, forgive me for everything I've ever done. Anything, Lord, that's not pleasing to You.’"

“And I saw our pastor lean down and whisper,” recalled Cary, “’Remember Dell, you will live and not die.’”

“They came back and they said, ‘You've had a heart attack and it looks like a bad one,’” Dell exclaimed.

Cary informed, “and she's gonna have to have a stent put in.”


“They did the stent,” said Dell, “And the cardiologist said, ‘You should be dead right now. Ninety percent of the people who have the kind of heart attack you've had don't even make it to the hospital or they die in their sleep at night."

“The heart attack was so bad, that it severely damaged my heart,” Dell continued. “My heart was functioning at only about twenty percent. They were so worried that I could have another heart event, that they fitted me with a life vest. It's actually a defibrillator that they strap around you, with all kind of monitoring devices on it.”

“Coming back to the house, was tough,” admitted Cary. “The only way to get her around was in a wheelchair. I had to pretty much just kind of take over whatever was needed.”

“He would not leave my side,” smiled Dell, “And when we got home, every night – every night, he served me communion and prayed.  I couldn't breathe. I couldn't bend over. I couldn't do anything.  All I could do is just get up and go to the bathroom and go back and lay right back down because I was terribly, terribly weak. With the amount of damage that I had in my heart, they told me, ‘You need to get used to this life, because your life as you have known it is never gonna be the same.’


“My daughter had a friend that came over to visit with me,” told Dell.  “He had gone to seminary under this well-known pastor and he called him, he said, ‘We have a friend and she's had a heart attack and her heart is severely damaged. She's very weak and she needs a miracle.’ And this man said, ‘Have her at my church Sunday morning at 9:30 because God is going to heal her."


“I mean we had to wheel her in, she was so weak,” Cary said, “And then lifting her up, two people on each side of her lifting her up.”

“They lifted me out of the wheelchair and I stood there in front of him,” said Dell, “And when he put his hand on the top of my head, it felt like a bolt of electricity just shot through my body. And when it did, it set off the siren on my defibrillator!”

“I mean, the noises and the bells and whistles, everything's happening,” Cary said energetically, “and I'm thinking, ‘What is going to go happen now?’

And she was able to get around there and cut it off before the thing, you know, went off. It hit me right then, that something special was going on here.”


Dell said, “The very next day I had a preset appointment for a follow-up with my cardiologist. No wheelchair. He looks at me and he says, ‘How are you doing?’ I said, ‘I'm doing great!’ And I said, ‘But I don't like this life vest on. I want to take it off.’ He said, ‘Oh, no, you can't take off the life vest.’

And I said, ‘I want another test. I want to prove to you that God healed me.’”

“After the test,” Dell continued, “he said, ‘Take that defibrillator off, because you don't need it anymore. Your heart is back to normal.’ He said, ‘You’ve had a miracle.’ My heart was back to normal, but it was the low end of normal. So, this young man calls that pastor back again and he said, ‘You have her back here Sunday morning, God’s gonna finish what he started.’”

“We wound up going back in, and kicking it up a notch,” chuckled Cary. “He touched her, and I could tell, God healed her. Then, we went back to the doctor…”

“He said these words after the test,” Dell recounted, ‘Dell, not only is your heart back to normal, your heart is at the high end of normal.’ The Lord had given me a brand-new heart, a brand-new heart!"


Dell exclaimed, “I feel better now than I did twenty years ago! I have more strength; I feel healthier than I ever did.”

“Keep walking, and keep believing,” instructed Cary, “and hoping and praying and hanging onto God, and sure enough, He came through.”

Dell ended with a smile and said, “there is nothing, that He (God) can’t do.”
