How does Crisis help us become more real in a spiritual manner? Does this have any bearing with how God turns us towards spiritual maturity?

Update: just wondering how 'Crisis' is viewed; if can work for us ultimately; towards creating an inroad, a crossroads for growth... through a time of great intensity... confusion... danger. Can the critical... be a blessing which takes us into a recovery process ?
Update 2: and please, why is there any need to thumb anyone down... let's raise the notch a little and stop that bad attitude... if you want to answer my questions... please show one another some respect... as not all people will agree, but we can at least be civil and respectful to others.
