Todd Chrisley Says He Fell Short of God’s Glory Amid Legal Troubles

By Movieguide® Contributor

CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST star Todd Chrisley admitted that he “fell short” of God’s expectations after being convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion, along with his wife Julie. 

In a recent episode of his podcast, CHRISLEY CONFESSIONS, he explained, “God has literally taken me to a place where I have so much peace with no longer worrying about trying to please – or trying to meet the expectation of someone else.”

“The expectation I long to meet is of God,” he continued. “God expects me to be a good, decent, honorable human being. He expects me to honor His word, He expects me to be the leader of my household, He expects me to set an example for my wife, my children, to lead by example.”

Chrisley shared that he always worked to do this, “but where I fell short in doing that is that I really didn’t give glory to God in all of the things we were accomplishing because I felt like I was the one doing the work. I was the one getting up every day, I was the one staying up late at night not thinking that God was the one giving me the energy to be able to do that.”

The reality star said that he has now “surrendered” everything to God after realizing he couldn’t ​​”tell the difference between my self-worth and my net worth. And the bigger my net worth became the less I focused on my self-worth. Because everything was being built around that net worth.” 

The couple are facing jail time for their financial misdeeds, and will be sentenced in October. They are still hopeful about the future, though. 

“[The] storm that we’re going through right now eventually it’s going to end … exactly the way that God intends for it,” Julie explained. 

“I feel like that my marriage, for me personally, internally, is the strongest that it’s ever been,” Chrisley added. “I feel like for the first time in my life and my marriage, I feel like my marriage is feeding a part of me that I didn’t even know was starving.” 

Julie agreed, saying, “You and I have been a team since day one. I think for both of us, this situation, our season of life right now has shown us it’s not about what our plan is, it’s about what God’s plan is.”
