It was the early 1990s. Lisa's husband had recently gone through a career change and was in the process of building another business, regularly working 60+ hour weeks. Lisa was cleaning houses, 2 per day usually. They had made the decision that they would not use daycare, so one of them was home at all times. One car, little money, no "down-time" - that is when this song was written. As the song was being prepared for recording and release, Dan Moran suggested changing the title and the hook-line lyric from "Just Trust God" to "Put Your Trust in God". Lisa agreed with him that it made for a better song and the suggestion was taken. After all, trusting God is something that a person actively decides to do, it doesn't just happen. The song was recorded in CA and released as a part of Paths Leading Home.
