I'm a bit late, but I'm glad to see that its working for you. Here's
what I have in my user services for running syncthing:

(define %syncthing-user-service
    (documentation "Run `syncthing' without calling the browser")
    (provision '(syncthing))
    (start #~(make-forkexec-constructor
               (list #$(file-append (S "syncthing") "/bin/syncthing")
               #:log-file (string-append #$%logdir "/syncthing.log")))
    (stop #~(make-kill-destructor))
    (respawn? #t)))

I have %logdir defined elsewhere as:
(define %logdir
  (or (getenv "XDG_LOG_HOME")
      (format #f "~a/.local/var/log"
              (getenv "HOME"))))

and S is specification->package.
