Coming before the Lord I find I want to do the same. I give thanks, I give glory, I give God my shopping list. But to sit quietly............be still............and just be warmed by His presence............giving Him my gift of silence and a listening ear.........that is difficult and takes effort.
In order to have an intimate relationship with my Lord Jesus, I need to be able to listen and respond. Talk and listen. Back and forth. When I talk to my husband, our ability to communicate and know each other on a deeper level takes time and comes from a place of love. It really is no different with our Father/God. Out of a place of love we come together without the clutter to communicate.
We desire to know God on a deeper level, so embracing the silence is essential. Eliminating the clutter in our minds and our surroundings bring us before God to await His presence. Our Lord knows the blessings that come from being still, that is why He commands us to do so. Being still.............knowing that He is God. Knowing He is the I AM.
"Be still and know that I am God."

How do you embrace silence?
