Home Position

I learned how to type my senior year of high school. On the keyboard, there’s something called the “home position,” which includes the keys A, S, D, and F on the left side, and the keys J, K, L, and the semicolon on the right side.

When you first learn to type, it’s not uncommon to lose your place because of unfamiliarity with the keyboard. You’re taught that on such occasions, you should return your fingers to the home position. Returning to the home position allows you to regroup, regather, and refocus.

There are times when it may seem as if your life is spiraling out of control, as if you can’t find your way, as if you’re lost.

When such times arise, when you don’t know what to do, when you don’t know what key to press, simply return to the home position.

Prayer is your home position. Prayer helps you to regroup, and regather, and refocus.
