Genesis tells us that, on the first day of creation, God created light. This is Genesis 1:3:
Yet the sun and the other stars were created later, on the fourth day. This is Genesis 1:16:
This is often commented upon. But it's fairly easy to solve this problem if you accept the scientific account of cosmology, whereby there was light more-or-less from the beginning of time, even before any stars were formed. Light is just a type of radiation, and there was plenty of that after the Big Bang.
Even for a young-Earther, this doesn't seem too troubling.
