I am a loss for words...
Dear God, as I pray to you this morning I am asking for guidance and reassurance that I understand this passage that you have shown me in the book of 2 Timothy, that I will reach hearts of others who are also struggling to find in their hearts the real meaning. Amen
I looked up and studied translations on this verse and found the New King James Version (NKJV) helped me to understand it a little more:
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15 nkjv
I could have not said it better than the message from Bible Gateway website:
Repeat these basic essentials over and over to God’s people. Warn them before God against pious nitpicking, which chips away at the faith. It just wears everyone out. Concentrate on doing your best for God, work you won’t be ashamed of, laying out the truth plain and simple. Stay clear of pious talk that is only talk. Words are not mere words, you know. If they’re not backed by a godly life, they accumulate as poison in the soul. 2 Timothy 2:14-18
We can learn a lot from God's creatures, like the butterfly. The butterfly changes completely from its early larval stage, when it is a caterpillar, until the final stage, when it becomes a beautiful and graceful adult butterfly. God expects us to become beautiful and graceful adults as we study his word, from a young child to a beautiful adult. Unlike the butterfly, we tend to loose faith and forget God's promises, that is why we need to talk to God everyday and he will walk us through the days of our lives.
I will leave you with this last note from God found at www.kingjamesbibleonline.org

My closing prayer...
I want to thank you God for guiding me through the Bible verse that you put on my heart to share with others. As you know I was at a loss of words and you walked me through, step by step, that helped me to find understanding. Please God, help me to practice the passage 2 Timothy 2:15 daily that I will be an example for you and that you will be proud of my work and that will also become a beautiful adult. Not perfect, but beautiful in your eyes. I realize that I cannot be perfect because you, God, are the only perfect one, but keep me on the right path. Amen
I am not a bible scholar; I am just a wondering bird seeking God
