Today's power thought is about resentment and comes from South African Black nationalists who spent 27 years in prison for fighting against the country's discriminatory apartheid system of racial segregation. Nelson Mandela. His negotiations in the early 1990s, with South African president, FW de Klerk helped bring an end to apartheid and ushered in a peaceful transition to majority rule.

Resentment is harboring of ill will or anger against someone who you feel has wronged or hurt you, and you couldn't stop it. Some people hold resentments for many years, refusing to let go of them. Over time, whatever caused the original anger and lead to the resentment may be forgotten.

Some ways to overcome bitterness and resentment are, forgive yourself and others. focus on improving yourself. Pray for them and your heart. Take a moment to imagine what you would feel like if you simply let it go. If that's too much, how about being more relaxed about the situation? Iaffirm:
I am releasing all resentment and offering it to my Creator for healing. I am forgiving and praying for the well being of all those who have done harm to me.
