Here is just a quick update: yes, I am in Iceland now.  I arrived in Reykjavik this past Sunday, and this week has been a time of readjustment, settling down, and getting some rest as well.  I played electric violin with a tight worship team at the local House of Prayer (ICE-HOP ) on Sunday night, and the presence of the LORD came in a powerful way.  Hallelujah!  I am looking forward to more wonderful worship times and just God-times here in Iceland, among friends.  Let His kingdom come and His will be done here as it is in heaven.

As I mentioned earlier, I will seek to post fresh contents to Love’s Rest regularly from Iceland.  I have great internet connection here, so uploading to the web shouldn’t be a problem.  God is good.  Amen!

journey into His rest

Just this week, I realized that it has already been one year since I launched Love’s Rest (last December), and I have to say that this devotional website has grown and progressed beyond my imagination.  Praise God!

I started Love’s Rest out of an idea God had given me, and now, after 100+ posts and over 5,000 visitors, I am grateful that God birthed this site and used it to bless so many people worldwide!

(and He is continuing to touch lives through it each day)

I remember, last year, it was during an epic two-week periods of snow flurries and cold weather here in the Seattle area, when I was stuck and trapped in my old apartment (with my car buried in the parking lot), and I couldn’t go out to fellowship with friends for Christmas, that the Father drew me into a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him.

And during those days, after hours of  soaking and worshipping, I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to go to wordpress.com, and the dream of Love’s Rest became a reality.

Thank you Daddy God, for your amazing love, for all that you are, and all that you’ve done.  And may the knowledge of You be spread all over the earth, as the waters cover the sea.  I know I have been transformed by You as well, in creating, maintaining, and cultivating this website.  Thank You for what You are doing in me and through me.  Amen.

I have much more fresh contents in store this new year for Love’s Rest, so get ready to go deeper in the Lord!

~ Samuel

May your Thanksgiving Day be filled with the warmth of Father God’s love.

May you experience His joy with friends and family.

And may all of us offer up praise and thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ.

We have much to be grateful for!

Amen.

This is a picture from one of my past mission trip to the Philippines.  We hiked 2+ hours in the mountains to get to a mountain village, and the river in the photo is right next to the village.  This place is not accessible by cars, and there is no electricity there.  You wake up when the sun comes up in the morning, and sleep when the sun goes down.  Over there, life is simple.

The people in this picture are all friends of mine.  After hiking to the village in the morning, we relaxed by the river to refresh ourselves before the church meeting that night.

welcome home…

...to a place where you can relax and refresh your spirit.

Draw close to God.
Get intimate with Him.
Drink until you overflow
with His love.

Here are some spiritual nourishments for your soul. Read the devotionals, poems, and songs. Soak and be filled in His presence. Enjoy!

Come to me,
all you who labor
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Matt 11:28
