The "Even Now" vs. The "And Now"

There's a great scene around the raising of Lazarus where, even with her brother buried and dead, Martha manages to say to Jesus:

But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.
Those two words - "even now" - say so much.

Anyone can exhibit faith in the and now moments.  God does something, something miraculous and now we believe.  And now.  At least, for a little while. 

But there's something special about seeing faith appear in the even now, before the miraculous, after and during the painful.  Stories of even now faith inspire us.  We repeat these stories.  Celebrate them.

Where have you seen "Even Now" faith?
