Hi, here is just a quick update, letting you know what’s been happening since my Oregon post.  We did go to Jesus Pursuit church, which was great!  Later, after crossing the state line into California, we were fortunate to catch the 2nd half of Bethel Church‘s Sunday night service in Redding.  It was my first time at this world-famous church, and God did not disappoint!

After the 4 days, Beau and I arrived in LA at my parents’ place.  I took him around LA a bit, showed him some cool places, such as the Getty Center, before he flew back up to Seattle.

I have been down here in LA for about 1 month now, hanging out with my family, visiting various ministries, and hosting another friend (Ola from Iceland) for 5 days.  Every week down here has been pretty eventful, including lots of rain!  (I had lived in Southern California for 15+ years before, and I don’t remember it ever being so rainy in one month)

Next Tuesday I will be flying out to China for 1 month.  To learn more about my upcoming trip, click here.  You can keep me in your prayers, as I embark on this journey to the other side of the Pacific, following the Lord’s leading in 2011.

Living from rest.  Receiving His best.

I am writing this post from a hotel in the small town of Albany, Oregon.  My friend Beau and I are here, in the midst of a 4 day road trip from Seattle to LA.  Tomorrow we will be visiting Jesus Pursuit Church here in town, and heading down to Redding, CA in the afternoon.  It has been a restful journey, and I know we will have some extraordinary God-encounters along the way.

Blessings to you from mid-Oregon.

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!

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

Matt 11:28
