Man Who was Written Off by Doctors at Birth Now Shares How His Second Birth in Christ Revolutionized His Life

by Teresa Neumann : June 10, 2008 : Gracie Bonds Staples - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Christopher Coleman—becoming the first in his family to graduate from college—likens his life in a wheelchair to the blind man in Chapter 9 of the book of John" in that he was "born with such challenges, so that the works of God be demonstrated in him."

(Atlanta, Georgia)—A report in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution chronicles the life of Christopher Coleman, from doctors "writing him off" after his premature birth to his second birth in Christ years later.
Chris ColemanAccording to the article, shortly after Coleman's birth doctors said he would never walk, talk, or even think for himself. His father abandoned his mother the day he was born and throughout his subsequent years in school people treated him as a non-entity as he sat in the back of class in a wheel-chair.

"No one talked to me," he said, wondering why he'd ever been born. "No one even wiped my nose."

Meanwhile, he taught himself how to read and his mother "passed on her faith" of God to him and ultimately he graduated among the top five in his high school class of 1993. A short time later he moved to Georgia to go to school at Southern Polytechnic State University. One day in 1998, Coleman sneezed, spraying the personal assistant assigned to help him with his daily tasks. The assistant didn't get frustrated or annoyed with Coleman like so many others had in the past.
"It's OK," the man told him.

"I didn't hear him," Coleman said. "I heard God say, 'It's OK.' "

That, notes reporter Gracie Bonds Staples, was Coleman's second birth and in that moment, realizing that he was not a burden to the world, his life changed forever. Coleman has spent the last ten years taking this message of hope to others, and will do so again June 19 when he speaks before a performance by TobyMac in Atlanta.

Adds Staples: "Christopher Coleman—becoming the first in his family to graduate from college—likens his life in a wheelchair to the blind man in Chapter 9 of the book of John" in that he was "born with such challenges, so that the works of God be demonstrated in him."

"I don't live my life in a wheelchair,'' he said. "I live my life from a wheelchair."

Our God does not sleep nor slumber, He is able to all things.  He never fails those who put their trust in Him.... I will keep on trusting in him all the days of my life. Hope you will join me in serving Him too? Godbless you my friend.
