“I Need to Know the Lord”: Actor Atticus Shaffer on How Pain & Suffering Led Him to Jesus

While it’s certainly not something any of us enjoy, it is often through pain and suffering that we grow closer in our relationship with God. It is through our trials that we are stripped of our idols and forced to rely wholly on God, who alone is sufficient for us. Atticus Shaffer knows what that means.

Actor Atticus Shaffer, 19, who played on ABC’s sitcom “The Middle” for nearly a decade, knows that all too well.

Now, Shaffer is saying goodbye to “The Middle” and opening up more about his spiritual journey that started with the diagnosis of his genetic disorder known as osteogenesis imperfecta.

The disorder can be extremely painful and makes sufferers much more susceptible to broken bones.

But while his suffering through the disease planted a seed, Shaffer didn’t fully commit to following Christ until he was a teenager.

“I really committed to Christianity when I was 15,” he shared. “I just knew I had that draw to say, ‘I need to know the Lord. I need to know where I stand.”
