Amazing grace knows how to burst the bubble of controlling and abusive persons. Through amazing grace, persons who have been oppressed and violated by abusive partners may suddenly realize they can live without the toxicity dished out to them by the partners. For some inexplicable reason, these abusive partners assume that their abusive grip can never be broken but that’s not true.
Aretha’s partner, Ted assumed she could not live without him. He assumed he would always control her because of the ‘demons’ but somehow, she knew she’d survive. And she did. That was grace.
