I came across this video by accident. Caine dreamed of the day he would have lots of customers visit his arcade, and he spent months preparing everything, perfecting the game design, making displays for the prizes, designing elaborate security systems, and hand labeling paper-lunch-gift-bags.
However, his dad’s autoparts store (in an industrial part of East LA) gets almost zero foot traffic, so Caine’s chances of getting a customer were very small, and the few walk in customers that came through were always in too much of a hurry to get their auto part to play Caine’s Arcade.
But Caine never gave up.
Gal. 6.9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Here lately I have had so many dreams and desires ? One was starting a blog. Which has terrified me because thoughts like “I am a terrible writer.” or often I ask myself “who will even read this ?” But then the dream comes back and makes you push through the fear and doubt.I have a dream to help others, to give, and to create media that people will appreciate. Caine encouraged me to not give up on my dream. I hope he did the same for you.
What is your dream ?
Have there been times when you were tempted to give up ?
What keeps you from giving up?
