What FREEdom from MEdom Project intends to be is an in-depth study and discussion of the transformative life-changing process; anticipating hope growing from within; resurrection into newness of life; redemption through divine healing, tethered to the assurance of that hope in the experience of the evidence that keeps it real.
FREEdom from MEdom Project exists to help hurting people to find healing and redemption through recovery God’s way into the best of a new life experience. It delves deep into the process of how we think and behave while reacting to failed expectations. It confronts the problem of entitlement. Jesus traced my preoccupation with me to a certain selfishness on my part, declaring that I am a slave to sin (John 8:34)—addicted to selfishness. Apostle Paul wrote that there is a power within me at war with my mind (Romans 7:23). You see, it really is all about me. That’s a problem.
“I have gone through the FREEdom from MEdom Project then concluded that it is divine; my heart is deeply touched. I have been touched by your vision for delivering addicted people. May this vision that is still in the womb be quickened to maturity. May God expand your vision mightily all over the world. I’m moved to pray for this ministry because it is a unique one… I know that this wave shall cause a great revival in our land.” —Leonard Walubengo, Pastor, Nairobi, Kenya

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come.” Luke 4:18-19 (NLT)

My name is Steven Gledhill. FREEdom from MEdom is my journey into what I believe to be authentic recovery. Preoccupation with self is the essence of my broken (fallen) condition… my addiction to sin… obsession with dissatisfaction. It is time to call this for what it really is so that the change process into new life can be realized—experienced—in relationship with Christ. Please join me on this wonderful journey into the very best of what God has and wants for us. He wants it for us more than we do.
“Lord Jesus, I say that I believe in You. I say that I believe in what You can do. but then I battle emotionally with faith, clouded with doubt about what You will do. Why do I struggle with what I believe? Why won’t I trust in what I know? Help me to be more confident in what I know. Help me to see what you see and to know some of what you know. Help me to let go and trust in what I say I believe in. Embolden me to trust You. Help me to believe that you love me.”
I cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:24 (NLT)
THE VISION of FREEdom from MEdom Project is to reach out to all who need to be in recovery, having been crippled by their “drugs” of self-centered thinking and behavior.
A pastor-friend of mine in recovery told me that he believes the key to one last revival in the world is recovery from all that keeps us from experiencing freedom in relationship with God. God desires to be in fellowship with us but we keep Him at a distance so long as we are obsessed with all that dissatisfies.
“Without the guidance this program gave me, who knows where I would be today. Today, I am happily living out my life… and recommend this program to anyone who is addicted… This program laid a foundation that I neglected to build growing up. It gave me real direction and the resources to make clean decisions. My life is in no way perfect. Life still has its problems, but I now can rationally work my way through them.”—Edward, Recovering FREEdom from MEdom Client
