Gospel singer, Benita Okojie, rarely talks or makes headlines but she seems to have been pushed to speak out recently after observing how some women struggle to change their man but to no avail.

She pointed out that it baffles her seeing some women go through domestic challenges in the hands of a man and instead of them leaving the home to pray for the man from a distance, they continue to bear the pain.

According to her, “Dear Sister, understand that you're not God. You can't create any human so why then do you think you can change a man? Often times, women in love give excuses for why men treat them badly or have dangerous habits. Instead of leaving and praying for him from a distance. They stay and believe that they are agents of change. Sometime ago, I was told a real life story of how a man changed his religion because he was in love. He started going to church, even joined the work force just to get the lady's attention.

“After he married her. He went back to his former religion and his old ways. The lady became miserable. If a man is going to change. It should be for the right reasons and it is God that changes a man because if Truth be told, ask those who are married, they say love is not enough to keep a marriage but God is enough to keep a marriage and everything else! As I type this, Samson comes to mind. But that's for another day. Think on these things, note to my Sisters.”

With such a strong message, it is obvious that the singer is indeed taking her time to pick the right man not to make mistake like others she has been reading about.
